So it took people calling me a lazy ass to get it done but I finally brought my car into the dealer to have them install my ECS stage 2 clutch.

Pedal feel is very light. Almost too light for my taste but I hear this is normal with this kit. Its supposed to get a little stiffer after break-in but not much.

It seems to hold well but I'm not past break-in so I can't abuse it yet.

Flywheel is pretty nice. Not much chatter. Car is a little more rev happy. RPMs change much faster so the car is easier to rev match for slightly smoother shifts.

All in all it was about 750 for labor from the dealer.

Now I just gotta track down some boost issues so I can really torture test this thing when its broken in.

That's a good price for dealer labor. I payed a little less than that fr my stage 3 clutch install by a private location.
